Cefnllys etc.

Reports today from BG of 6 Ring Ouzels up the Elan plus a Black Redstart ! Bet they disappear with the sun tomorrow!

Very little in garden with the  lovely weather, but the immature GC grebe IS still on the lake; either he is commuting , or hiding when I look! Could only see one G

Fieldfare Rhogo.

004A flock of C 40 flitting about the large conifers and birch trees up the Rhogo…..Glad to see them….. I thought they were never coming due to the mild climatic conditions…..Very Skittish a vehicle drives past on road and they are off.

L’dod Lake.

The dismal weather continues: it will be too dark to take pics soon! We have yet another hybrid with the Canadas: I’m guessing at CanadaxGreylagxWhite front…some combo! but that white blaze comes from somewhere and I can’t see it emanating from a Barnacle , otherwise it would have some grey surely? Not that genetics is my strongpoint! P’raps someone out there… Finally our fav Mandarin pops up again after several days who knows where!  No grebe and garden empty._DSC1380_filtered_DSC1395_filtered

015It’s not long before they find the berries and join in….The yew and hawthorn are taking a pounding… although there were plenty of rowan berries ( looked like a bumper crop) due to the warm spells they dropped early….I have seen very few Field fares about,006 previous years there were big flocks and few Redwing this year vice versa… Still plenty of time for them to appear.

Late Oct. seems odd to see one of these , but some do overwinter;this one @ Cefnllys a few days ago , picking minute insects from what remains of the buddleia. Round lake before the drizzle moved in and just 4 Goosanders.DSC_5776_filtered
